Ingredients

Crust

1 1/2 cups
all-purpose flour
1/2 cup
sugar
3/4 cup
almonds, cashews and/or macadamia nuts, finely chopped
1/2 cup
cold Land O Lakes® Butter

Filling

2 cups
sweetened flaked coconut
1 (14-ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
1 (6-ounce) package
dried tropical fruit mix*, large pieces chopped, if necessary
 
*Substitute 1 1/4 cups mixed dried fruit bits.

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Combine flour, sugar and nuts in large bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pat mixture evenly into ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together coconut and sweetened condensed milk in small bowl. Stir in dried fruit mix. Pour mixture over hot, partially baked crust. Continue baking for 16 to 18 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and center is set. Cool completely. Cut into bars.

Recipe Tips

Tropical fruits, once hard for consumers to find, are now exported in abundance to the United States. Typical tropical fruit varieties include mangoes, papayas, bananas, coconut and pineapple. Because these are fruits that dry well, their exotic flavors are intensified in their dried form, perfect for cookie baking!
